The county sheriff is calling it an "absolute miracle." Two young sisters were found in good spirits Sunday after being missing in the California wildnerness for 44 hours.
Leia and Caroline Carrico, 8 and 5, were last seen Friday afternoon by their home in the northern community of Benbow, the Associated Press reported. They were found by a local fire chief and firefighter about a mile and a half away in a wooded area.
Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal said the girls were trained in outdoor survival techniques by their 4-H club. Along with their granola bars and rain boots, they were able to survive getting lost.
The girls' disappearance launched a massive search, and rescuers were able to follow their boot prints and granola wrappers. Leia and Caroline were found cold and dehydrated but in good spirits. More on MSN News.
